Description

Parador de Santiago de Compostela  - One of the world´s grandest 5* hotels, the Parador de Santago de Compostela is located in the very heart of Santiago de Compostela, in the Plaza del Obradoiro adjacent to the magnificent cathedral. The Parador, which was the old Royal Hospice, was built by order of the Catholic Monarchs King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella as a refuge for poor pilgrims. It opened its doors in 1499 after nearly ten years of elaborate planning and construction and continued to function as a hospital until 1953.

The building itself is a veritable museum along Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque lines.  Outstanding features of the Parador de Santiago de Compostela include the Plateresque doorway, the inner courtyards and the chapel. Furnished with antiques and works of art, most rooms look out on four arcaded patios with fountains. The public rooms are elegant while throughout the entire building there is a strong sense of the past revisited.

All bedrooms are equipped to the high standards you would expect from a hotel of this category. Guests may enjoy traditional Galician cuisine in the parador's exquisite restaurant, an impressive stone vaulted room. The excellent location of this Parador, right in the centre of Santiago, makes it possible to enjoy on-foot all this city has to offer. Within minutes of the hotel there are a whole host of restaurants, bars and cafes.

Please note that this Parador is often heavily booked, so an early reservation is essential to guarantee availability.

Additional information

SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA is one of the three cities to represent the history of Spain as a confluence of three civilizations: SANTIAGO, symbolizing the Christian world; GRANADA, the symbol of Moslem culture; and TOLEDO, the Christian, Arabic and Jewish civilizations all in one.

This famous place of pilgrimage in north-west Spain became a symbol of the Spanish Christians' struggle against Islam. Destroyed by the Muslims at the end of the 10th century, it was completely rebuilt in the following century. With its Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque buildings, the Old Town of Santiago is one of the world''s most beautiful urban areas. The oldest monuments - which are in the Plaza del Obradoiro - are grouped around the tomb of St James and the cathedral, which contains the remarkable Portico de la Gloria.

Declared by UNESCO in 1985 as a World Heritage Site and in 2000 selected as the EUROPEAN CITY OF CULTURE, Santiago de Compostela also boasts a fine university over 500 years old. The capital of the Autonomous Community of Galicia, it is now undergoing a period of urban expansion and cultural enrichment, with the founding of new museums and the birth of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of Galicia.

The city is the perfect place to spend a few days. It has an outstanding variety of cultural attractions that begins with the cathedral and the impressive Plaza del Obradoiro, and continues through the historical, narrow cobbled streets and neighbouring squares which are a pleasure to discover. Food lover´s will adore the many excellent restaurant´s and bars particularly along the Rua del Horreo, which is just one tempting seafood experience after another.  Be sure also to try the many delicious cheeses from this region and the excellent, locally produced Albarino white wine.
